Rick's Jeep Adventures

Attraction details
Owner description: We offer Jeep Rentals to see the Outer Banks Wild Horses. Rick's Jeep Adventures is the only rental company in the Outer Banks that allows you to customize the Jeep the way you like. These options include the choice to put the top down, take the doors off, avoid direct sunlight with a mesh SPF50 Bikini Top and a complimentary iced cooler. Our Jeeps are customized for beach driving, with top of the line AEV lifts from 3 to 5 inches and 17 inch alloy wheels with 35 inch Kevlar sidewalled tires. These additions not only look great but offer superior handling, ground clearance and traction on the beach. Rent from the best and all you need to do is enjoy your ride! Your off-road Jeep adventure lasts a little over 2 hours. The Jeep tour will take you across the pristine 4X4 beaches. Because our Jeep Rentals are "self driven" but "fully guided" we can offer a full money back guarantee to find the horses. Following a guided tour provides you with access to our guides who enjoy sharing local history and information on the Spanish Wild Horses. Our guides are your GPS and can guide you safely around the 6-7 feet deep mud puddles of Carova and keep you safe back behind the dunes. At Rick's Jeeps we care about our local area, so we want to make sure that everyone has fun on the beach with the minimum environmental impact possible. We also want to ensure that the Spanish Mustang Ponies of the Outer Banks stay free and wild for generations to come.

“Jeep trip to see wild Mustangs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Our experience with the Jeep rental for our family of 10 to see the wild horses at Corolla was such an amazing trip. Even though the weather was very cold, we each had a great time riding/driving on the beaches and through the area where we came upon several of the wild horses. Gary was a wonderful guide, was knowledgeable and entertaining. We enjoyed the trip so much that we are making plans to rent jeeps again next year when we come for our Christmas vacation. Thanks Gary!

“Great Ride and Great Views with Gary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We read all of the other reviews about asking for Gary and they were all right. Ask for him as your guide and you'll see your share of wild horses and have a fun and educational ride. Great tour for the family or whatever group you're in.

“Amazing tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

My boyfriend and I decided to do Rick's Jeep Adventures based on the great reviews and we are very glad that we did! We went on December 12th and it was a very cold/windy morning. We were worried we might not see any horses, but Gary told us he would do his best to find us some horses despite the weather. It didn't take long and he spotted some! Then we found more - roughly about 15 horses in all (including 2 babies)! That was way more than I expected considering the weather. Gary was very informative and had a great personality - he took our picture on the beach for us and really made this a trip worth remembering. We will definitely do this again when we come back to the Outer Banks!

“Ask for Gary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

We went on our horse adventure in a little weird time of the year which is November because I just got married and wanted an escape. Our tour guide was super. He told us about the horses, took us from the best routes and took our pictures at the beach too. So next time you travel ask for Gary. He is the best tour guide.

“Wild Horse Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

We had 6 family members that joined Gary on our adventure, what a great time we had. Gary is reallllllly high entertainment value! We couldn't have had a better guide, driver or entertainer, fun!
We would come back in a heart beat, as long as Gary was our driver! Gary was informative and we all learned something in our time on the tour. Glad we chose Rick's for our tour. Great job! Thanks, Gary, from the family from Austin, Texas, Ripley, NY, Hampton, VA and Avon, NY. Awesome.
